in janesville, where we were about to lose a major factory. right there at that plant, candidate obama said, i believe that if our government is there to support you, this plant will be here for another 100 years. well, as it turned out, that plant didn't last another year. >> stephen: what a disappointment. because if it had lasted another year, then obama would have been president when it closed. instead it was george w. bush. thanks a lot, obama. and the lame extreme nit-pick patrol are now saying that there were other times that ryan misrepresented the facts in his speech. here's when they say he was lying. jimmy? >> right -- there. when he starts, when he starts moving his lips. right there, right there. now one liberal web site out there even spewed ryan's speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped slipped into a single political speech. and no surprise that comes from the pinkos over at fox news. fair and balanced my ass! >> but thank god, thank god, folks, the romney-ryan ticket isn't grabb

obama was to blame for the closing of a gm plant in ryan's hometown of janesville. the idea was absurd since the plant closed in december of 2008 before obama took the oath of office. since ryan's speech the press has hammered ryan over the sheer volume of his factually unsound statements. it's that gm plant that's gotten the most attention. ryan fired back, i guess you could say that, on the "today" show this morning. >> what they're trying to suggest is that i said that barack obama was responsible for our plant shutdown in janesville. that's not what i was saying. read the speech. what i was saying is that the president ought to be held to account for his broken promises. after our plant was shut down he said he would lead an effort to retool plants like the janesville plant to get people back to work. it's still idle. my point was not to lay blame on the plant shutdown. this is yet another example of the president's broken promises. >> okay. we all watched that speech of ryan's and heard what ryan said. it's incredible what he's saying now, congressman, he never said what it

society. in my own experience, i know it as janesville, wisconsin. janesville is a place like 10,000 others, where a lot of good happens without government commands it, wrecking it or claiming credit for it. that's how life is supposed to work in a free country. and nothing undermines the essential and honorable work of government more than the abuse of government power. the president's telling, government is a big benevolent presence, gently guiding our steps at every turn. in reality, when government enters the picture, private institutions are so often brushed aside with suspicion or even contempt. this is what happened to the catholic church and catholic charities this past january when the new mandates of obama care started coming. never mind your own conscience, they were basically told and from now on, you're going to do things the government's way. ladies and gentlemen, you would be hard pressed to find another group in america that does more to serve the health of women and their babies than the catholic church and catholic charities. and now, suddenly, we have obama care bu
